On Monday, August 22nd, the entire district of Ridgeview was able to witness the partial solar eclipse here in Colfax. The entire school dismissed from their classes around 1pm, grabbed their glasses and headed outside to experience the partial eclipse at its maximum at 1:19pm. Using eclipse glasses and projection viewers, students were able to see the 92% coverage of the sun by the moon. Students noticed the drop in temperature, the darker sky, and the difference in the shadows. Some students used their solar eclipse glasses as a filter for taking pictures of this amazing event!
Dear Parents and Guardians of Ridgeview C.U.S.D. #19 students,
The second week of school this year comes with a unique learning opportunity for our students! On Monday, August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse will be visible across all of North America. Although there are some parts of Illinois where a total eclipse will be visible, only a partial eclipse will be visible in our area.
Since the eclipse will take place during the first full week of student attendance, many teachers will likely take the students out to view it. Your student must have a signed paper copy turned into the office or an electronically signed permission slip on file to view the eclipse at school.
Log into Family Access to electronically sign the permission slip.
